General Manager Buddy Nix
On summing up his feelings about the overall season:
It was a two part season. We were excited the first seven games. I knew we weren’t quite as far along as everybody thought we were. It was fun. It was fun to see the fans and this city get as excited as they did. Our players were excited. There’s no excuse for losing seven games in a row. That was a complete downer and a complete surprise. I think we did get it back a little bit. We make all kind of excuses; injuries and that kind of thing. Even with that we should have done better. I think we’ve got a good nucleus. I’m excited in talking to the players. I’m excited about how they feel and excited about a new year. It’s time we need to make sure we step up and get it done and I think we will.

The Bills came back from a 32-point deficit in the second half to win an AFC Wild Card game over the Houston Oilers at Rich Stadium. Buffalo was down 28-3 at halftime and Houston scored a TD early in the second half to lead 35-3 before the Bills made their comeback and won the game 41-38 in overtime on Steve Christie’s 32-yard field goal.


Bills RB C.J. Spiller scored on a 15-yard reception on Sunday and finished the 2011 season with 561 rushing yards on 107 carries and 269 receiving yards on 39 catches.  He also had six total touchdowns.
